KeePass and Quick Macros video tutorials
KeePass is a password manager and has some unique command line possibilities.
Those command line possibilities in combination with the {PASSWORD_ENC} option makes keepass even more safe.
You can fetch data from a keepass entries (records) like password, notes, etc...
And you can edit data from a keepass entries.
You do not have to use the plain keepass .KDBX (keepass database) password, you can generate an ENCRYPTED password in keepass which is tied to your computer.

This encrypted password is much safer. Even when an attacker get's access to your .KDBX and encrypted password the attacker can not access the .KDBX on his machine. (unless the attacker is physically there at your machine OR can remote control your machine OR when the attacker manages to clone your machine HARDWARE and OS wise.)

Read here about keepass command line and about the encrypted password in keepass.

*  Keepass command line help:
* Keepass command line KPScript help:

* Keepass encrypted password info:
This is the forum topic (scroll to the bottom there are a 4 links given by the author of keepass, I put those links below)

Because of this I created 2 video tutorials:

1. KeePass command line tutorial

2. Quick Macros and keepass tutorial

Tutorial 1 explains the keepass (and KPScript.exe plugin) command line.
Tutorial 2 explains how to use tutorial 1 in Quick Macros

There are timestamps below in the video description of the corresponding youtube page.

Once you understand tutorial 2 you can more quickly interact with keepass and even create your own front-end with special functionality. For example you could even go so far as to create your own version of LASTPASS. (I do not explain how to do this).
But I added a .qml in tutorial 2 (see in youtube description) which contains a simple ICsv function which gives you the possibility to fetch the whole .KDBX database into an ICsv. From there on your own imagination is the limit.

Do not use the plain .KDBX, use the ENCRYPTED password.

I purposely created 2 tutorials in stead of one. The usage of encrypted passwords in keepass was so important to know for every one that I decided in that in tutorial 1 I explain info about keepass-command-line and encrypted password without quick macros. And tutorial 2 about keepass and quick macros. In that way users who do not have QM or do not want to use QM can still see an explanation about this in tutorial 1 and use it in their own BATCH (or other) scripting environment.

I hope it is of use to you.
